Samsung Galaxy S4 Review:
We have not got it in our hand yet. Will publish it just after getting. By the way, if you are seriously looking to buy Samsung Galaxy S4 from Bangladesh right now, then our humble seek is to check out the detailed review from TechRadar.
Should you upgrade with Galaxy S4?
No! People who own Samsung’s previous successor, Galaxy S3, It will not be wise decision to upgrade to Samsung Galaxy S4 right now as there is not much difference in design and specification between the two model. Samsung Galaxy S4 is .31 inches thin where the previous version of series is .35 inches thin, difference is only .4 inch. You will not be able to see and feel the difference normally.
Another reason for not to upgrade is, what software the new Galaxy S4 got (eg: S Health, S Translator and Group) is coming to you Galaxy S3 soon. It could available soon for download.
As various tech site claims, brightness of the Galaxy S4’s display isn’t impressive. The S 4’s 5-inch Super AMOLED screen registered at 258 lux, which is brighter than the S III’s 213 lux display, but way below the 299 lux category average.
Will it take the market?
If we talk about international market, we have no doubt it will grab a big portion. But, for Bangladeshi market, we are in doubt whether it will gain the expected market share or not as Apple’s iPhone 5 entered the market last month and has already grabbed huge customers. Local low cost smartphone like Walton Primo H2, Walton Primo H1, Symphony W125 and Walton Primo N1 with similar specification to Samsung Galaxy S4 are also in process of taking a big portion of the market.
Anyway, we welcome the new Samsung Galaxy S4 in Bangladesh and wish the company good luck.
